Google Toolbar, WEbmail extension for Firefox. If you use Opera set it up to check your gmail.

I made a new package:
gmailbashchecker
http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/debian/website/


___________________________________________________________
GMAILBASHCHECKER
___________________________________________________________

downloads at :
stable: http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/d...ker-0.1.tar.gz

development: http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/d...ker-0.2.tar.gz

last version: http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/d...ool/contrib/g/



___________________________________________________________
Features:
- Bash checking of the gmail accounts
- Use the gpg encryption Cool no? so that your email password isnt in clear anymore
- Check the processes, and let only one gmailbashchecker running
- Plays KDE sounds if an email has been received
- A file in /tmp/ is created as log and permits other users to see that email is received (this is very important for my box because I run mythtv and this pc is shared. Also the other users can use the crontab -e )

___________________________________________________________
A bug, is that when checking the emails.

Use the Pidgin instant messenger (http://pidgin.im) to configure your google talk account and logon as invisible if you wish; enable email notifications.
